[antlr-interest] Wondering about bogus getLine() implementation

I am just wondering about the bogus getLine() getColumn() Implementation in
BaseAST (not overwritten in any subtype)

    public int getLine() {
        return 0;

    public int getColumn() {
        return 0;

Okay, in most cases you don't care about line numbers but in my case I do.
So what is the reason for this?! Do I miss anything?

I simply assumed I could pick up that information in the parse tree??
